By 1969, the Jackson 5 were already a Motown powerhouse with the Billboard Hot 100 single “I Want You Back”. it’s just amazing to see their perfect performance.
What impresses the most are the perfect harmonies of each of them as they dance and play guitar and bass. But of course, all eyes were on Michael Jackson back then.
Her incredibly mature performance and vocal quality at her age are hard to come by these days. He conveyed the emotion in his voice with ease and captured the audience’s full attention at the same time.
